    Please suggest me a motherboard for AMD Athlon 64 3200+ which has onboard graphics with atleast 128 MB memory. My budget is 6000/-. It should also have SATA support.

    Is the graphics chip enough to play new games, or I should buy a separate graphics card?

    Which 17" Flat monitor is better LG Flatron or Samsung Syncmaster 798MB Plus?

    Re: arre biswarup

    Look Sh*thead If you can't give straight advice then stop fooling around the forum.

    @biswarup:For a budget of 6k You can easily obtain a MSI's RS480 M2 IL with onboard Graphics or even the recently launched Asus A8N-VM model which features the all new Nvidia's 6100 Chipset.Both of them can allocate a Max of 128MB of onboard memory.Both of them have SATA support.Infact A8N-VM supports SATA II :D.Both of these Mobo's must be around 4.5k atleast.
    As for the Monitor,I reckon better opt for a Acer AF715 or the Viewsonic E72f both of which are pretty decent 17" Monitors IMO.

    yah the msi or asus mobo suggested will be a good and pocket-friendly choice...also since they have pci-e slots u can add a good gfx card later also.

    but one thing ought to b kept in mind....there are 2 versions to the amd athlon 3200+, the socket 754 and the socket 939

    the asus mobo suggested above supports only 939 pin processor, while there are probably 2 versions to the msi rs480...one for socket 754 other for socket 939....in case u have the older 754 pin processors then go in for msi rs480 for around 4700

    The MSI k8ngm2, would, IMHO, be a better choice than the options suggested till now...based on the new Nforce IGP
